5 Hilarious Thanksgiving TV Episodes
One of the things we’re thankful for every Thanksgiving is all of the awesome Turkey Day-themed episodes of our favorite TV shows, both past and present. Here’s a collection of some of our favorites!
Beavis & Butt-Head Do Thanksgiving
Serious music journalist Kurt Loder plays the straight-man to Beavis and Butt-Head who are supposed to be covering the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade. It’s pretty brilliant.
Since there was a Thanksgiving episode in every season of Friends, this was a difficult one to pick, but we went with the episode from the series’ fifth season. This episode is full of flashbacks and provides a lot of backstory and reveals the reason that led to Monica’s weight loss.
In time, this episode will surely become a Thanksgiving classic. Bob and Linda’s landlord asks the family to pose as his family to make an ex jealous. Surprise! Wackiness ensues! There’s too many details to list, but fortunately, this episode’s on Netflix. Also, it gave birth to this Thanksgiving song!
The Fresh Prince of Bel Air
Uncle Phil hurts his back so Will takes him to a massage parlor, but it’s actually a “massage parlor,” if you know what we mean. This scene of Uncle Phil and Will in jail is priceless. (“Tiny onions!”)
This was a tough decisions, since there are multiple Thanksgiving episodes to choose from, but we went with the first one South Park tackled which finds the boys in the custody of a young Ethiopian child, and Cartman accidentally winds up being sent to Ethiopia. Guest appearance by “Sally Struthers” and genetically engineered turkeys.
Erica Banas is a rock/classic rock reporter. The first man she ever loved was Jack Daniels. True story.
